While MP-3 and AAC files often permanently delete as much as 90 percent of the data of the original music file, uncompressed formats, and even lossless compression codecs like Apple Lossless and Flac, preserve all the bits in the original music file.

"The convenience of the digital age has forced people to choose between quality and convenience," Young said. "They shouldn't have to make that choice."

I'm certain i-tunes will eventually be in the 24-bit/192khz high-resolution file business.

Why hasn't busted a move towards High-Rez file offerings of future Dave's Picks and any other re-mastering of all vault music including many previous "Dick's Picks" shows is beyond comprehension in todays computer audio driven music business model.

I believe that Rhino should hire Charlie Miller for their in-house transfer and mastering duties. Granted there may be a need for investment in new hardware, couldn't think of a more perfect fit for both parties.

I would like to work for Charlie and Rhino in this vein. I believe I could contribute to "Promotions" by creating and organizing web-based social networking structures that are dedicated to these new projects.

Recording engineer Pat McMakin, of Ocean Way Nashville, demonstrates the quality difference between a CD recording and an MP3 recording. Watch his embedded video in this article:
